    Also known as "He'll say anything outlandish at any given time."

    I wonder if Trump will double down on eliminating the debt in 8 years, against what his advisor said, tomorrow when he unveils his "new" plan.

    Gee who would have thought that bumping military spending and drastically reducing government revenues would cause debt?

    The analysis itself takes it pretty easy on Trump too, estimating only 650 billion in new spending for the wall/immigration plus the military, and the veterans (veterans $ is obv needed though).

    Did trump seriously say that he would eliminate the debt in 8 years?

    I mean, there's pandering and then there's treating your audience like retards.

    don't forget other countries have to pay up to 100% of the cost to defend them… If he does that and reduces our 150 countries we have bases in to let's say "only" 30 countries we'll be getting closer to a sane foreign policy

    I'd like to see many bases closed and hope they go the same way as the Philippines. Cheer as we leave and then go oh fuck now what?

    republicans never talk about how cutting taxes increases debt. btw trump said he would also rebuild all our infrastructure, completely rebuild our military(to make the most powerful ever) and healthcare system. all while driving down our debt.

    Don't worry, maybe he'll follow Kansas and eliminate income tax for businesses. It worked out great for them....Oh wait.

    His tax plan coupled with the spending he supports (deportation, wall, military spending, etc.) is indefensible. I did hear Gengrich's lame defense that no president has a plan that balances the budget. I mean really dude wtf.

    Gingrich's "facts vs feelings" interview was pretty awful too.

    A few highlights

    So, screw the environment, more tax breaks for the wealthy, fuck trade agreements (even though we benefit from them).

    I can't wait to see the bipartisan economics analysis on this.

    Unlike Ryan or Romney, Trump doesn't even know enough about the subject to lie plausibly.

    But, it's kind of like how scamming emails intentionally include misspellings and general bad grammar to weed out non-idiots.

    Not as insane as his original plan to tax the highest income bracket 25%, but still still pretty crazy.
